After a rainy winter, the Anza-Borrego Desert is coming alive with blooming wildflowers in different areas of the park. There were maps of the flower “hot spots” available at the Anza-Borrego Desert State Park visitor center.
The 20-30 mph winds made any macro photography of the flowers impossible—they were just bouncing around way too much.
These photos were taken along San Diego County highway S2 near mile marker 31.0 east of Borrego Springs. There was very little activity along Henderson Canyon Road where I photographed the super bloom a few years ago.
